Leeds University Innovation Centre (NEXUS)

£3 million of Leeds City Region Growth Deal funding is being invested into the NEXUS innovation centre at the University of Leeds to help expand business innovation and ‘incubation’ space in the city.

Our investment, part of a total £40 million project, will help businesses more easily access the university’s world-class research expertise and also increase the amount of ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ lab space for businesses looking to innovate.

More than 500 businesses are expected to benefit from NEXUS over the next few years.
